    Re: Profound and Touching Quotes Thread
    I like this thread as I love great quotes. Pretty anything from Twain got me into that sort of thing.
    God created alcohol so that people who looked like me could get laid as well - Sinead Murphy (Irish writer b. 1959).
    Work is the curse of the drinking classes - Oscar Wilde.
    We have just religion enough to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another - Jonathan Swift.
    Dancing: The vertical expression of a horizontal desire - George Bernard Shaw.
    The true use of speech is not so much to express our wants as to conceal them - Oliver Goldsmith (Poet and Writer 1728 - 1774).

    Re: Rate/Discuss Recent Films You HAVE Seen
    I watch a lot of Korean films. Oldboy, and The Yellow Sea are some of my favourite flicks. But I don't know any drama. Are there any good shows that can match the intensity of those aforementioned films. Extra points for any show with a guy fighting off a large group of guys armed with a hammer, or any sequence with a guy trying to figure out if the guy he is forced to kill is at his most vulnerable; can he be killed quickly enough with a stabbing type weapon which could entail a clean getaway as it would not leave noise, and it leaves a clearer message than a gun etc etc. Korean films are sooo good for me.
    That passage in "The Yellow Sea" with the guy trying to decide if he should go up to the apartments to do his job matches the most tense moments in film I have ever watched. It could be the most tense moments I have seen on film. The other one is the scene in 'Le Cercle Rouge" which is so good that it has to be seen. There is no sound why the guys are doing a break in. It is such a cool film, the soundtrack and camera work is especially good. Such great films that are not American nor British should not be ignored.
    A good enough trailer for 'The Yellow Sea" It deals with borders, and how people move back and forth, and what they do between them. It is very interesting; like if you lived in El Paso, and could cross over for other stuff.

    No scenes for me to put on 'Le Cercle Rouge'. But it is indeed one of the coolest films I have ever seen. It has it all, in modern noir. It has the guy who is on the run, and the chase scene, the well dressed guy trying to figure what is up, with a girl that has a few clothes less than victoria's secret, the tangles with the local mob, along with the tangles with the local cops. But what sets it in stone as a brilliant film, and what makes it so fracking tense, is the break in scene. It has to be seen.

    Re: New Finances (Loans / Contracts)
    First of all I would like to congratulate SM for a big step in the right direction with these changes.
    But these changes will clearly strike hard vs the small clubs since they got small stadiums and the only way to compete with the bigger teams is very good scouting while the bigger clubs can just sit back as they play for a big crowd week after week.
    I suggest that you should be able to increase your stadium capacity by paying for it. That would be a good reward if you are skillful enough to scout the right players. But there should of course be a limit to how big you can build your stadium. Let's say the limit should be 100 000.
    Also the cost for these increase should become more and more expensive if you already have a stadium with big capacity.
    Lets say just for an example you want to increase your stadium from 15000 to 20000 it costs 10 mill whilst it should cost 50 mill if you want to increase your stadium from 50000 to 55000.
    And the size of how many attendors that comes to watch you play should follow how succesful you are, not which team you manage.
    As it is now when managing a small club you don't play for a full stadium even if you are one of the top teams in the highest division. But if you manage Man Utd you play for almost a full stadium even if you are in the bottom half of the table.
    These changes would still make it possible to build up a small div 4 club to a top team in the highest division and I know there's a lot of managers that like that challenge.

    Re: PLEASE SM - Reintroduce the rating schedule!!
    Thanks for the quick reply JMH, I will get back to this with my reply tomorrow if I can. I have a few more ways of improving stuff to suit both ends; needless to say it boils down to a system where there is a set schedule and where the tidying up stuff gets done. I do think all parties can be satisfied here.

    90 rated keeper Helton can go, and Porto also have many players listed for p/e.
    I want to change the team about and give it a new look, with younger players preferred, like everyone else.
    I have already brought in 70 players with 61 going out. Best deal was swapping Almeida for Ledesma. But people don't want to do deals for the most part, so I will probably be stuck with these players for quite some time.

    I'm sorry guys but I have to leave this setup as I am neglecting duties for the team and had played a bad formation for most of the season and only realised my mistake recently.
    Good luck Venky with the setup and I am sure you can get someone in at a team like Bayern Munich who will do them justice.

    Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread...
    Hummels would be the best choice if you are looking to keep that team for a number of years. His rating can, and will match Chiellini's soon enough. The German league is a better league than the Italian one, and the German international team has the ability to win EC's and WC's, while the Italians will more than likely prove to be the semi-final fodder for the Germany team.

    And so are hundreds of other players in leagues all over the world. Many players in the likes of Korea and Japan and Romania and Bulgaria and wherever else are also due their fair review. I don't get why cherry picking risers here and there makes this system better. I like SM having the power to do the changes as it seemed more impartial, when I read comments on the forum where someone says "I bought this player x so you will all see him rise very soon" or something like that makes me nervous, as I don't want people having the power to give rises to who they and their buddies have and ignore players that tend to be older than they would like in their team.

    My strong second team take care of Anzhi 3-1, with newly rated to 89 Lima grabbing MOTM. He scores and Cristian has 2. Malouda scores for the away side.
    I think this setup will go all the way to 20 and above, 19 and above, 18 and above. We may go back to 30 and above and this custom will go way past others in being full and having good banter on the thread at pre-season, and throughout all the season.

    We know everything is slow, and soccerwiki (which I have not gone on) seems to be uber-schrapp but can we not go on about it every single day of its badness please. If it keeps going on about complaints about blah did or did not get done 30 days ago or whatever then this thread will need to close as it is not offering anything worthwhile now to anyone except the whiners who come here to complain. I agree how slow things are and how random some changes are, but this here thread will not change anything.
    Again I will say, if only negative pap keeps coming on then I will see to it that this thread is down for a bit. And hopefully people will go on about which countries may come up (and which should and why) and keep this thread going for what it should be.
